Afghan Koran burning at Bagram sparks fresh protests

At least four people have been killed and 20 injured in Afghanistan as protests spread over the burning of copies of the Koran at a US airbase.

One person has been killed in Kabul, one in the eastern city of Jalalabad and two in Parwan province.

US officials apologised on Tuesday after Korans were “inadvertently” put in an incinerator at Bagram airbase.

Officials at Bagram reportedly believed Taliban prisoners were using the books to pass messages to each other.

The charred remains of the volumes were found by local labourers.
